One paragraph containing only one sentence. It takes a good writer to pack an entire story into that small a space, and Jan Karon does it. Repeatedly! It's been a few years since I read one of her books, and now I'm wondering if I've read them all and simply forgotten some details about some of the characters or missed a book or two altogether!
At any rate, I'm happy to have THIS one in hand--lent to me and delivered in person by a kindred spirit. Her visit itself was delightful and left my heart in a peaceful state, as conversations with good friends are wont to do...
"I loved that book, Rebecca! I even bought it...and now have it sitting up on a cabinet near me, as I LOVE the title!!!" So wrote a less-familiar friend who read my facebook post chronicling my happiness of having been lent the book since I was far down the list of others who had placed a hold on it at our library. Like Marilyn, my less-familiar friend, I love the title, too.
Oh, the pleasure of reading a simple and fine story
in a comfortable chair in a warm room
on a cold, wintry day!
